Business and Management Research Institute (BMRI)

BMRI has undergone many changes during 2011-12. The Institute saw a growth in the number of staff expressing an interest in becoming research active. That said, BMRI has experienced many changes in its directorship. Whilst the management structure remains the same with six Centres, the Director changed with the departure of Professor Perkins.

The main focus of the Institute in 2011-12 was to continue the process of developing its research and publication performance. This was seen as towards the REF. A major concern was the recruitment of new, and research active staff, of all levels of appointments, including senior academics.
BMRI is currently consists of six Research Centres:


  • Business and Information Systems Research Centre – led by Prof Yanqing Duan

  • Centre for Research in Marketing – led by Prof Jillian Farquhar

  • Centre for Leadership Innovation – led by Christina Schwabenland

  • Centre for Research in English Language Learning and Assessment – led by Prof Cyril Weir

  • Research Centre for Contemporary Accounting and Finance – led by Dr Franc Etu-Menson (Acting)

  • Centre for Research in Law – led by Dr Silvia Borelli with Dr Richard Lang (Acting)

In addition, staff member (sadly moved on) DrTerri Simpkin (University of Bedfordshire) presented a seminar on,“Theorising Occupational Decision Making: A longitudinal study of hospitality training in schools”, February 28, 2012 .

CAM has acquired 7 new research students during the year including entrepreneurship. Supervisory capacity remains a problem with a need to recruit senior staff with completions. 2011 saw the award of a M.Phil to Poramate Kantanavich. External examiner - Dr Francesca Dall’Olmo Riley from Kingston University.

Staff have continued to raise the profile of marketing and the business school through their research outputs, participation in major workshops and submissions to international conferences. The date for hosting the Academy of Marketing conference has been confirmed as 2015. This is an international conference and we anticipate hosting about 500 marketing delegates from universities all over the world. Preparations are underway.
